jobs. he said he would cut the deficit in half but it doubled. he said he would get unemployment to 5.2 percent and today it ticked up to 7.9 percent. that is 9 million jobs short 789 those are real americans. can't find work. 23 million in work can't find work or work that is up to their needs. this is a critical time. the president was a president who took office with the economy as the number one challenge and he has high are unemployment today than when he took office. think of that. the president of the united states presides over a nation under his leadership where unemployment is higher than the day he took office. he said he would save social security and medicare because they were headed to insolvency. instead, he made no effort to save either and he took $716 billion from medicare to pay for obamacare. and he said he was going do lower the cost of your health insurance by $2,500 a family by now. instead it has gone up by $3,000 a family. gasoline prices are also up by $2,000 a family. of course, he said he would work across the aisle on the most important issues america face

of enthusiasm on both sides. my strong sense, paul, this is an enthusiasm deficit on the democratic side. >> paul: all the polls show that. >> all the polls show that and i think it's a going to be a determining factor, now, new jersey, new jersey, maryland, it isn't going to decide whether-- obama will win those states. his popular vote may be down, i think the hurricane is going to suppress the popularity vote. >> paul: dampen that. >> and i spoke to a pollster not working for the obama campaign and agreed with dan's sentiment, turnout was an issue for democrats, enthusiasm is down, but also says that he thinks this allowed obama, even though he missed some days on the campaign trail, allowed him to get out there and show some leadership, some bipartisanship, thanks to the new jersey governor, republican chris christie be being at his side for a couple of days. >> paul: i want to ask you, new jersey residents, and generally a fan of governor chris christie, what do you make of this embrace of the governor with the president? >> well, our colleague peggy noonan, says you want to keep yo
on obamacare that killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half and then he doubled it. and then he said he would bringlet unemployment rate down to 5.25 percent and we learned on friday 7.9 nine million jobs short of what he promised and unemployment. and unemployment today is higher than when barak obama took office and by the way, he promised to propose a plan to save social security and medicare. he did not. rather he raided $716 billion from medicare to pay for obamacare. the list goes on. and he said he would low are health prem yups by $2000. and instead went up $3000 a family. and average american family pays $2000 more for gasoline than when president obama was elected. and i mention one more thing. he said he would work across the aisle on the most important issues. he's not met on the economy or on the budget or on jobs with either the republican leader of the house and senate since july so he's made the divide wider. people wonder how is it he fell so short of what he promised? he never led. or worked across the aisle and never truly understood how jobs are
really addresses the deficit and the need for revenues. let's leave that problem off the table and talk about the job situation. i like what romney wants to do, the code has a lot of deductions that shouldn't be there, we should just lower rates and get at them. and in fixing that, if you pay 25%, and then you get deduct the mortgage or don't get to deduct the mortgage and pay 20%. if you're net-net not getting taxed any more, i don't see how that's actually going to lead to more spending and i tell you a little dangerous in the short run, the housing market is still-- and to pull out major deductions the home mortgage deduction being one of them. he didn't say he was going to do that, if it didn't do that, but makes the budget work. >> brenda: i know, the tax code is like war and peace. overhauling it, will that help get jocks. >> like you've read that. >> not immediately, but look, we've got the most sophisticated tax code in the entire world, makes us uncompetitive and the u.s. falls on a competitive basis and a lot of reason is the tax code. what it's done, it's made small businesse

to the economy. he said he would cut the deficit in half by the end of the first term and unemployment rate would be 5.2 and yet we have 23 million people unemployed despite the fact that 175,000 jobs were added. economt say it is slow. what is your message to voters who are frustrated to the record. >> the message is, the president came in the wort economic recession and thirty-three 32 straight months of private sector job growth and we know we are move nothing the right direction and needs to goer. the president has a better plan and vision for the middle class. >> and regarding libya. a number of congressam leaders are upset by the white house continuing to ignore the request for information and on the libya attack that kill would four americans and charging there is a cover up under way. does the president owe the american people a full accounting of what he knew before election day. >> the president is clear and our record shows this as information as become available we made it available to the american people. this is a tragedy but this is not time for politicalizing a tragedy. this is a
of sequestration and congress couldn't get act together to figure out how to reduce the deficit. automatic cuts went in affect . governor romney got a lot of questions about fema because he said in the past he would cut some aspects of fem a. dana weighed in on this. >> remember, governor mitt romney was governor of massachusetts and knows how the federal and state relationship works. there is no one in washington who could look at the program and say there couldn't be improvements and see how we can get money to the people faster. in fact, president obama himself said that today. he instructed the federal government no red tape or bureaucracy. it is preposterous to try to hang that on mitt romney. one of the first things he said. people who donated to his campaign. we don't need your resoues at this moment. give to the red cross or check on your neighbors . where do they start being political. on saturday the federal government put out a statement about the storm, it uses campaign language lean forward which happens to be a competitive net word. i could not believe that someone in the white ho
. that's crazy. but because we've got such a gigantic deficit right now, peter, you're exactly right. if the congress says okay, let's put more money in the 'til for fema, that money is probable lea going to be borrowed from china. >> peter: also, people sign up and they pay for flood insurance program and so they pay premiums and it should be paid. but there is a cost. >> gretchen: yeah. i think most americans don't mind paying taxes if it's going to help these devastated people. they might want to crack down on waste that we're in the government first. >> peter: that's absolutely right. >> gretchen: so when the president went to new jersey yesterday, he flew over point pleasant, one of the most devastated regions in new jersey with governor christie. somebody else had something else in mind. apparently they're not a president obama fan. because in all the sand that washed up, somebody put letters r, o, m, n, e, y. >> steve: why? because they love him. we have gotten some cables labeled secret that shows that about less than a month before the assault on our consulate in benghazi, a
. it is the deficit, it is the debt. on all of those issues governor romney does enjoy a lead. so i think you combine that with the intensity gap. i think governor romney has momentum still. martha: it will was fascinating night. we'll talk to you before then. then i want to get your actual picks on the record. >> dangerous. martha: thanks to you for that, doug. bill: we like dangerous. martha: yeah, you bet. bill: there are brand new details on top secret communication showing exactly how much the white house knew about the security matter in benghazi, libya. we'll show that to you. details on that. a sloggy slog getting the city back on its feet. we're back to lower manhattan for the latest martha: we're just getting a look at connecticut that the is still reeling, that city, that state i should say, from sandy. nearly 400,000 homes and businesses remain without power. the superstorm's wind toppled trees and power lines. there is new london, connecticut on the screen. the state's largest electric company says the state will have power by tuesday. they have a long way to go. governor dan malloy is s
he focused on obamacare which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half. then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate, down to 5.2% right now. today we learned it actually is.9%. that is nine million jobs what short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. unemployment is higher today than on the day barack obama took office. [booing]. he promised to propose a plan to save social security and medicare from insolvency. he didn't. rather than he raided $716 billion from medicare to pay for his vaunted obamacare. [booing] he said he would lower health insurance premiums for the average family. by $2500 a year by now. actually by now they are now 3,000 higher for an average family. and gasoline, the american family now pays $2,000 a year more for gasoline than when he was elected. of course he also said he would work across the aisle. the most important issues. listen to this. he has not met on the economy or on the budget or on jobs with either of the republican leader of
on with the broken promises not just on the economy but on the deficit and on social security and medicare. >> and the president's bigger promise to unit us instead of dividing us. governor romney has a history of working with the other party in massachusetts and history of job creation. >> mitt romney is good at sending jobs away from america. governor, i got news for you. a president's job is to create jobs in america. for americans. with americans. bringing jobs home to americans. that is a president's job. you're not running for ceo of bain. >> the president's campaign slogan is forward. but the 23 million americans failing to find a good job feel a lot more like backward. >> the fact of the matter is that buf governor romney's ecoc policies are reverting back to the same policies that i inherited and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. >> despite all that he inherited president obama did not repair the economy and save medicare and social security and tame the spending and borrowing. did he not reach across the ail to bring us together. what he inherited wasn't the o
-0 deficit and history would have to be made if the tigers want to win a championship. dave briggs is live at comerica park with a look back. is that the game ball. >> here is the thing, desperate times call for desperate measures and the tigers are turning to me to pitch game four. >> oh, no! >> i'm on the mound. >> hang on, is hell freezing over? >> i'm just getting loose and going to make the start instead of max sherzer in game four, this series is all, but over, now the tigers are the first team since 1966 to go down shut out twice in a row in the world series, the orioles shut out the dodgers back-to-back games in '66. let's show what you happened last night. top two, really all the offense. this san francisco giants team would need. and it came here, a triple from gregger blanco and he might be the mvp in the series, terrific in left field and comes through with another clutch hit there and 1-zip giants. later on in the inning, blanco would trot home on a crawford single and go up two. that ball misplayed like so many others for the tigers team through this three game series. the bi
deficit in the they have to spend billions of dollars cleaning it up in new york. i think it's going to go that high here. >> you are right. they are saying four days hopefully to get the subways back. in i don't know how they are coming up with that kind of an estimate. >> bill: they the get some lines up but some won't be up in that time. >> there is a point breezy queens, claf on the water. summer community but some people, and it was a massive fire. what happened there? sad story. this is the western most bare your island on long island. very close to new york. barrier island overtopped with water. fire starts. the fire department tries to get out there. it's flooded and it's a barrier island. difficult to get to. the winds were gusting to 80 miles per hour. so you have a fire started. and these homes are very very close together there. >> they are packed. >> they are packed. you get winds going 80 miles per hour. why don't know what started the fire. >> some kind of electrical situation even though the electric went down you have got a lot of oil and got a lot of gas hanging around. s
for debt and deficits, health care, energy, any day we're talking about something else, that's good for obama, and so i will be surprised if he doesn't make a little bit of a comeback here. he's had a prett pretty solid mt for a month. there wasn't anything happehe m. what may stop it is this storm and not so much that the president will do a great job, although i don't have any doubt that he will. mostly what happens right after a terrible storm is we know where i come from, it's the local first responders. it's the firemen, the policeman, the highway patrolmen, the national guardsmen, the mayors, the governors, but the federal government has a role to play, a bigger role down the road, but the biggest thing is changing the subject is great for obama. he's been trying to change the subject all year. >> greta: let's talk about timing. if he changes the subject, for instance, monday night, if everyone is done early voting, doesn't matter if he changes the subject. we're a week out and the subject is being changed a week out. there's a lot of early voting going on. i'm curious if ther
and demonizing. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half he's doubled it. he said he would focus on jobs, instead focused on obamacare that kills jobs, he said he'd bring health insurance down $2500 a year, the cost of it for the average family. anybody here had their insurance go down 2500? as a matter of fact the average is up $3,000 per family. look, the president said that he would work across the aisle. he would meet regularly with leaders in the republican party. do you know how long it's been since he's met with the republican leader he of the house or the senate on jobs, or the teconomy or the deficit? since july, he hasn't met with them. he just has not been able to deliver on the promises he's made. talk is cheap, a record is real and takes hard work and he's not been able to accomplish it and i have a record of accomplishment and that's why i'm running. (cheers) >> as you know, i started a business, i actually helped turn around another business and help turn around the olympics and you may have heard that i was governor next door in massachusetts. massachusetts in uple of my
or second concern. another quarter of the voters say that the budget deficit their top concern. those groups of voters said that they feel that governor romney is better positioned or better prepared to deal with those two issues. if that's the case, again, i ask why are the president's numbers so high? >> jon, this is the most mystifying thing to me, and quite frankly, it's one of the reasons why i sort of feel -- i have a lot of reservations about a lot of these polls. because if you were talking about any other time where you had unemployment as high as it is today, the debt as high, as huge as it is today, i would tell you that the incumbent was going to lose in a landslide. and i still think that maybe that may be possible. you know, we don't know how reliable these -- you never know how reliable the polls are until election day. but it's just absolutely mystifying to me. and either this guy has an amazing staying power that has never been seen in politics before, or, you know, come next tuesday he's going to get the doors blown off. jon: well, 32 years ago, october 27th in the national
budget problem and deficit problem. so when the government spends more money that it doesn't have, it doesn't help the economy very much. a big chunk was military but the other was services. businesses actually contrasted in the amount of spending they did so, contracted. and net exports went down. >> jamie: so what do you expect in the fourth quarter? where do we go from here? >> if we look why did businesses contract their spending, its fiscal cliff. we are looking at this thing somehow we're going to flip a lighted switch on december 31. it is happening now. they are looking at december 31, i don't know what my tax bracket is going to be. i don't know how much spending is going to get cut back, military spending is going to get cut back. when you are looking at moment crisis down the road you will contract your spending and taking on the way and see attitude. unfortunately the guy looking for a job out there, they are the ones that are going to get hurt. >> jamie: let's hope the guys and gals that are looking for work, explain to them what businesses are thinking right now. the
of the larger issue of what are we going to do about the deficit and deal with that. many of the leaders are now saying it is going to have to be a balanced approach. there will have to be revenues and serious cuts that have to be made. that that lies the middle ground and that is our task as representatives to get to that middle ground to work across the aisle and just imagine what we could do if we really worked together. it can happen and it will happen. >> shannon: it would be encouraging i know to americans regardless of party across the country. the president has taken some criticism for not getting more involved in this. do you think that there would be some benefit in him showing leadership and going to the hill and being in the room as hammer itdes try to hampster out? >> ternly not in the next 200 hours. he did that when the sequestration issue came up. it started over the debt limit thing. the republicans held at least the conservative part of the republican caucus in the house said no way were they going to allow the debt limit to be expanded and from that came the compromise of the
, because he famed to cut the deficit in half. he failed to take our country's problems and instead he ran from them and he blamed other people. we cannot afford four more years like this. we can't go down this path. after getting the run around for four years, it's time we get a turnaround. that is the kind mitt romney is. [ applause ] >> the president is not running on o agenda for a second term. we know where we are headed. debt schedule is going $16 trillion to $20 trillion. we have a tax increases staring us in the face. of all the taxes of obamacare, 12 of them hit middle income tax pace. we were leaving dayton at this beautiful church emanuel in downtown dayton. nice lady said please tell me you are going to get rid of obamacare and this assault to our religious liberties. i have to tell you we're going to get rid of the assault on religious liberties. there is so much at stake in this election. it really does come down to the kind of countries we're going to give our kids and grandkids. the kind of people we're going to be. does the government work for us or not? look, we believe i

the deficit by so much, we're now $16 trillion in the hole, there were all these shovel-ready jobs that didn't happen, and do you feel like it was worth it, is the economy roaring? no. so i think economists will look, there's the keynesian approach where we're borrowing a ton of money from china, we're spending all this money to try to get the government to create demand. i think if you look at the experiment, it did not work. megyn: all right, panel, thank you all so much. >> thank you. megyn: well, residents and city officials getting a first look at the storm damage in one new jersey town. we will show you the latest pictures from long beach island that will shock you, next. i'm a conservative investor. i invest in what i know. i turned 65 last week. i'm getting married. planning a life. there are risks, sure. but, there's no reward without it. i want to be prepared for the long haul. i see a world bursting with opportunities. india, china, brazil, ishares, small-caps, large-caps, ishares. industrials. low cost. every dollar counts. ishares. income. dividends. bonds. i like bonds. ishares
not want an administration with trillion dollar deficits every year. they are not happy with the prospect of half of our kids not being able to get jobs and they come out of college, and they don't like the gridlock in washington. our campaign is about real change from day one. over the coming days, i will be talking to people across the country about what those changes will look like. let me mention once you today. it relates to taxes. this is kind of a detailedc. let me just put this into perspective. jenna: governor romney and his speech in ohio today, we just learned from his campaign that he will move on to iowa, but that he is canceling his events tonight and tomorrow -- wisconsin tonight and a kantian thought tomorrow. due to sensitivity of the hurricane, hurricane sandy, that we are watching closely. if you would like to keep an eye on the governor, he says anything about the storm, we will bring that to you. in the meantime, we will get back to some of our hurricane coverage. jon scott is in lower manhattan. jon: you can still see the statue of liberty at the new york harbor here
dollar deficits in washington? >> no!. >> reporter: governor romney drawing the sharp contrasts with government. do you want bigger government with stifling regulations or smaller leaner government to help the private sector to grow and create jobs. he dinged the president in a new ad today suggesting somewhere down the road he may appoint a secretary of business, watch. >> barack obama says he may appoint a secretary of business. his solution to everything is add another bureaucrat. why not have a president who actually understands business? >> reporter: now, as the poll numbers keep moving incrementally as each of the candidates making their final arguments it is interesting to watch the battleground states flip back and forth. obama is up one day, romney sup the next, vice versa. it is clear indication, whether early voting, absentee balloting or getting out there on election day, in these battleground states, jenna, each and every vote really does count in 2012. jenna: in five days anything can really happen as we know as surgeon jalists. john roberts live in virginia today.
